As per the norm, the first thing someone does who just gets a new band saw is make a box.
Since I don’t have anyone to give a box to, I decided that I would just keep it in my workshop to put all the little knick-knacks in. You know, eyelets, picture frame hangers, brass parts for kerfmakers and such.
It is 12” high, 5-1/2” deep and 5” wide, has seven drawers alternating between a single separation and a full drawer. It is made from pine and cedar with a coat of tung oil.
Thanks for looking.

Pretty darn nice first attempt. If it would make you feel better, you can always make woodworking projects and give them to me. :-)

Hi Paul,

I like your box!

Those drawers look like they have a small radius turn at the corners. What size of blade did you use?

I like the alternating pine and cedar. I’ll have to try that. I just got some redwood to try as well.

I like your drawer pulls too. I just didn’t thnk I could do them very good and since I had the little metal handles it was easier to use them.

Well thought out and executed! I like the alternating entry points.

Dang, if this is your first, I wonder what your 10th bandsaw box will look like?!

That’s is some nice box. We’ll be waiting to see more. How long is the line for boxes getting? Bet it’ll be around the block soon.
